Hello PF! I just finished my freshman year at my local CC majoring in physics. I did not chose to major in physics to become a theoretical physicist, esteemed professor, or the next Einstein. I chose to major in physics because I want to teach kids about science and the universe around us. I'm on track to pursue a degree for my local university (where I will be transferring - most likely) in physics with additional breadth in chemistry, geology, and biology. This option that my local Uni. has set up for physics majors is solely intended for students who intend to teach high school as it fulfills the california single subject teaching credential with a concentration in physics and a supplementary science. This option is also for students looking to pursue graduate degrees in physics-interdisciplinary branches which I'm also stoked about because I was hoping to obtain a graduate degree in geology/geophysics. Just a little aside. However, I still have questions for the science teaching community here on PF. Would this integrated science program with a concentration in physics be better than a degree in pure physics to teach the sciences at the high school level? Also, to any physics/science teachers teaching high school, does anyone have any advice on pursuing a career in teaching and the outlook for science/physics teachers?
